Unfortunately that's not my experience. As a freelancer, any imposed
contracts usually take away my rights rather than establish them. For
example, I once offered to write some extra training materials for
another department of the company, which was going through a rough
patch and needed to offer new courses. The management insisted that
the copyright in the course materials would be theirs not mine, even
though this was not part of my regular job.

When I questioned this, I was told that anything I wrote while an
employee became their property, because I had agreed to this in my
contract. I said I had never seen any contract. The management
replied that by accepting payment, I had agreed to this unseen
contract. I'm sure this must be illegal anyway, but my point is that
my personal experience of people who insist on contracts is mostly
negative.

Ideally, yes. I think this is why we wrote up a Policy document for
linuxaudio.org

A good point. If only the world of business was so ethical!
